Today, President Obama delivered a Ramadan message to extend best wishes to Muslims around the world.
Emphasizing America’s commitment to engage Muslims and Muslim-majority nations on the basis of mutual interest and mutual respect, the President said, “In the last two months, American embassies around the world have reached out…directly to people in Muslim-majority countries. And from around the world, we have received an outpouring of feedback about how America can be a partner on behalf of peoples’ aspirations. We have listened. And…we are focused on pursuing concrete actions that will make a difference over time – both in terms of the political and security issues…and in the areas that you have told us will make the most difference in peoples’ lives.”
